This was the first comedy that Laurel and Hardy starred in without producer Hal Roach, although they had previously been "guest stars" in four MGM movies. After they finished making "The Flying Deuces," they returned to Hal Roach Studios to make films.

"The Flying Deuces" was Morros' first independent production... favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 8 reviews ) Topics: Comedy, Laurel And Hardy
